LENT 2019

The Lent season is a very important time of year for Christians. This year we want to Treasure Jesus - INTENTIONALLY - for 40 days. Below you will find the resources we are encouraging you to use as an individual, with friends, with family, and with the church body.

Why Lent?

We believe devoting some time and energy to understanding and observing Lent can be profoundly good for our souls and our families. Here is a resource that will help prepare you with a good answer if someone asks you about why you would celebrate lent.

Daily Reflections

We recommend "Fifty Reasons Why Jesus came to Die" by John Piper. Jesus came to die for our sins, but there is so much more he accomplished through his sacrifice. This resource will ground you deeper into the many reasons Jesus came to die. Click here for a free download.


Communion

During the Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday services, we will be serving communion. (Note: Is your child almost ready to take communion for the first time? See this helpful guide to prepare them before these events take place.

One excellent tool to help celebrate lent as a family is called "Lent in a Box”. You can purchase this resource at FamilyMinistryTools.org.
